What People Say About Dr. Lefkothea Karaviti, MD
Reply
She is knowledgeable and has been more thorough than any other endocrinologist. She has terrible bed side manners though. She does not take the time to educate the parents nor does she partner up with them for the best care of the child. Every time we ask her a question she acts annoyed and gives very brief answers. She also seems to rush through the appointments and never takes the time to explain lab results.

Not trustworthy, did not share full details of the treatment options and would not pursue the appropriate treatment.
